Software Reboot and types of longing

We upgraded our software
The world and I
After rebooting
we realised
that we are now
with each other.


Given the shrinking tolerance I have for the world, when they do it, it will seriously be "mercy" killing for me. :-p

There is the good kind of longing
and the bad kind of longing.
The good kind of longing
has a name, and a face
and therefore, it has a hope
or lack thereof.
Either way
it is certain.

And then there is
the bad kind of longing
which has no words
no face to reflect itself
no name
in short,
but the longing itself.

Interesting thought - the incompatible software !!
Only you could have come up with something like that.

There is another kind of longing which lies halfway between good and bad - the one where it doesn't prick or ache; it just sits there.. waiting for you, patiently.. days, months, years, sometimes lifetimes.. it is always by the corner of your eye, you try and ignore it but inadvertently keep looking at it.. and it saddens you to feel your own apathy towards it.

How do we know said...

Hi HT:

hmmm... yes, there is that kind of longing too... but it not between the two. Its the worst of the three.
